Earlier than originally scheduled, the first two gas turbines of Hail 2 power plant unit 2 have been taken into operation in May. The two other gas turbines will now follow in August. Since summer 2011, Lahmeyer International has carried out the overall planning of the construction of the third extension phase of Hail 2 in Saudi Arabia, by order of the general contractor alfanar Construction.
The existing Hail power plant is located approx. 600 km north-west of the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh. The new power plant unit contributes to cover the increasing demand for energy in the region. In cooperation with the Indian Lahmeyer subsidiary, the experts of the energy division of Lahmeyer International have been carrying out the overall planning and assisted in evaluating and selecting contractors. As scheduled, the power plant will be handed over to the operating company SEC, Saudi Electricity Company, over the course of this year.
